The Greater Omaha Chamber recently recognized three CARSTAR locations in Omaha with two awards at the 2015 Greater Omaha Business Excellence Awards.
Two Omaha locations, CARSTAR Silver Hammer and CARSTAR Northwest, were recognized as a 2015 Greater Omaha Business Excellence Award winner.
“Our CARSTAR locations strive each day to provide quality repairs and exceptional customer service,” said Margaret Keith, marketing manager. “We are honored CARSTAR Auto Body Repair was chosen for this award.”
CARSTAR Don and Ron’s Collision Repair, owned by the Krzemien family, also received a 2015 “Milestone Award” in recognition of 50 years in business.
The Excellence Awards celebrate companies that dedicate themselves to excellence and help make Greater Omaha a more vibrant place to do business, work and live.
“Excellence is a way of life in Greater Omaha – earned not given….and it should be celebrated,” said Melissa Glenn, manager, Innovative Strategy & Retention and the Chamber.
All the Omaha CARSTAR locations are locally owned. The team of Greg Petersen, Bob Keith and Tim Jensen own CARSTAR Silver Hammer and CARSTAR Northwest. CARSTAR Don and Ron’s is owned by Ron Krzemien. Three of Don and Ron’s children work at the Ralston business.
Online nominations, submitted to the chamber of commerce, were evaluated and scored on answers for specific characteristics of excellence in business, including innovation, leadership, philanthropy and community.
